Leeds United welcome Huddersfield Town in the early kick-off slot this Saturday as the side look to bounce back from defeat against Stoke City.

Leeds United return to Elland Road for the first time since the recent international break this weekend with local visitors in Huddersfield Town. Daniel Farke's side saw a run of three wins on the bounce end last weekend with a disappointing 1-0 defeat at the hands of Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium. The Whites still sit in third place in the Championship but are nine points behind Ipswich in the automatic promotion slots at this early stage of the season.

It's a different story for Huddersfield Town who have won just one of their last seven Championship fixtures and teeter above the relegation zone in 21st place. Here's how to follow this weekend's Championship action online.

Why is Leeds United vs Huddersfield not on TV?

Leeds United play Huddersfield at 12:30 pm on Saturday but it is not being picked up by Sky Sports as there is another Championship meeting in that slot being televised - Southampton vs Birmingham City. The Yorkshire derby is taking place at the earlier time at the request of West Yorkshire Police. The return fixture at the John Smith's Stadium has also been given a similar treatment and will take place at the earlier time.

A Leeds statement in July read: “Leeds United’s home and away Sky Bet Championship fixtures against Huddersfield Town have both been moved to 12:30pm kick-offs, following police advice.”
